Dec. 23 (Bloomberg) -- Steve Nash tallied 12 points and nine assists as he returned after a 24-game absence to help the Los Angeles Lakers defeat the Golden State Warriors 118-115 in overtime.

Nash, 38, a two-time National Basketball Association Most Valuable Player, suffered a small fracture in his lower left leg in a collision with Portland’s Damian Lillard on Oct. 31.

Kobe Bryant led the Lakers (13-14) with 34 points and 10 rebounds and Metta World Peace added 20 at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

After trailing 61-53 at halftime, the Lakers outscored the Warriors 34-21 in the final quarter.

Peace’s three-pointer with 24 seconds left had put the Lakers ahead 108-106 until Jarrett Jack tied the game 10 seconds later. Bryant missed an 18-foot jump shot at the buzzer.

Jack led the Warriors (18-10) with 29 points and 11 assists, David Lee had 20 points and 11 rebounds and Stephen Curry added 20 points.
